High school football, Provine at Ridgeland (7 p.m., Ridgeland): The Rams probably have to win this game to get into the playoffs.
MRA at Jackson Prep (7 p.m., Flowood, 103.9 FM, 970 AM): It's the Patriots vs. the Patriots in the first round of MAIS playoffs. Doctor S is boldly predicting a Patriots' victory.
Saturday, Nov. 7
College football, Alabama State at Jackson State (4 p.m., Memorial Stadium, Jackson, 1300 AM): The Tigers and the Hornets are both still in the running for the SWAC East title. Why?
Northern Arizona at Ole Miss (6:30 p.m., Oxford, CSS, 97.3 FM): The Rebels play another FCS (I-AA) team. The only reason this game is in the Slate is because it's on TV.
Sunday, Nov. 8
NFL football, Carolina at New Orleans (noon, Ch. 40, 620 AM): The Doctor goofed and has the Saints playing the wrong team in the print version of the Slate. No matter, the Saints will whip the Panthers, too.

The Slate is compiled by Doctor S, who can't believe the Philadelphia Phillies are so stupid.
The Patriots will win and otherwise beat up the Colts tomorrow and soften them up for us to kill later on should the need arise. Peyton's poor wheels won't suffice tomorrow. The Saints will lose too. Luck can't last forever! Hopefully, Cleveland will beat the Ravens, but even if they don't, I just hope they beat up the Ravens so as to keep them from having any dreams about defeating us, our World Champions, the Pittsburg Steelers.
